Logo Size for Social Media

Facebook profile mockup for new logo design

Today I will be sharing my insights on picking a logo size for social media. This is a very important part of the logo design process because a bad profile photo can affect people’s perceptions of your brand. This is part of a series I am writing to help your business define the best branding choices for success. If you are interested in learning about the best colour to use in your logo please look at this article.

The perfect logo size for social media

In order to ensure that your logo looks clean and crisp when used for social media please follow the guidelines below.

Facebook Profile Image Size

In 2019 the ideal Facebook profile photo size for your business page is 360px * 360px. This logo will be scaled down and displayed as 180px * 180px by Facebook. Facebook now shows a circular profile photo so make sure that your logo does not get cropped by this effect.

Marianna is an expert in what she does, she is not just a web developer but has a background in design which she brings to the table when designing your website.

She really takes the pain out of the whole process of planning and designing a site, she listen and comes up with the concepts to match your brand and show case what you do in a well designed and layout out site.
Plus she is a pleasure to deal with and had a great sense of humour, I would highly recommend her and her business Design Burst.

Having a fully optimised and well-designed website is key for all types of businesses.

I wish to highly recommend DesignBurst Website Design. Marianna Kane is exceptional and went far and beyond to ensure I was happy with my website. She really listened and provided solutions.

I am delighted with my new website! Marianna and her team were wonderful and they made the process so much easier than it might have been. At every stage I felt guided and supported through the process of creating a public image of my business that was reflective of the work I do. I also have an online booking system and a blog built into my website. It has attracted loads of new business enquiries. My clients already have a feel for the work I do before they book which is great.
Highly recommend!

Design Burst came highly recommend to me by LEO Meath. Marianna became my mentor and I had no idea what we cover in digital marketing but I just knew I need help as I was self taught. OMG is all I can say. She is a listener and tailored each session [all done over zoom] by your needs. She record the sessions so I could go over the material learnt. Marianna is a dream to work and I highly recommend Design Burst. She is just fantastic.... See MoreSee Less

I found Marianna to be creative, enthusiastic and a truly dedicated Professional. I learned very quickly that she is extremely knowledgeable in her field and imparts that knowledge and expertise with ease and clarity. When it came to designing my Website, I was completely clueless as to what I wanted and more importantly, what I needed. Marianna really assisted here and thoroughly advised me through the process, thereby putting me totally at ease. I was so happy with the end result. It's such an important job, designing your Website but from the get-go, I just found I could fully put my trust in her. I would highly recommend Marianna.
